    Hi pcs,

    It would depend on the context but I would say it is talking about a very pretty dark haired woman or maybe a very pretty sun tanned girl.

    But as I have said without context is very complicated to know.

    The ending -aza or -azo makes things great, beautiful, big or hard - Hemanazo is very common. Carrazo, amigazo, prorrazo, etc. Morena can be a dark haired or dark skinned woman => morenaza: great or beautiful dark haired or skinned woman. It does not have a bad connotation.

    It's just like what Ant said: either a very attractive dark haired or dark skinned woman, most likely even both.

    When you call a woman "una morenaza" it's like saying "one hell of a brunette." (obviously in a positive sense) In fact, I think that -az@ could generally be translated that way.

    Un moratón: a bruise
    --un moratonazo: one hell of a bruise

    Un partido: a match
    --un partidazo: one hell of a match

    Una morena: dark haired/skinned woman
    --una morenaza: one hell of a dark haired/skinned woman.

    Un cuerpo: a body
    --un cuerpazo: one hell of a body
    and so on..

    Por aquí le decimos ''morenas'' a las mulatas y negras. En el caso de ''morenaza'' sería una negra con tremendo cuerpo (If you know what I mean :D). También le decimos ''negronas'' a modo de broma.

    Exacto.
    Acá, mujer de piel oscura.
    Inútil intentar adivinar sin más contexto.
